Atlantic City Convention Center Taps Solar Power

And our last word in business comes from Atlantic City, a place famous for casinos, which may soon be known for its soaring environmental ambitions. The word is sunroof. The Atlantic City Convention Center says it plans to cover two-thirds of its roof - or about 290,000 square feet - with solar panels. It's hoping to save several million dollars in electricity costs. At the moment solar energy accounts for one percent of U.S. energy use. And according to a solar industry group, the Atlantic City Convention Center's plan could be the largest solar energy project in the country involving a single rooftop.
